A very attractive chawan (tea bowl) made in the kuro-oribe style of pottery.
This particular bowl was used during the celebration of the 350th anniversary of the great tea party at Kyoto Kitano-tenmangu shrine. The original event was hosted by Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-1598), the regent of Japan at the time, on October 1, 1587.
The anniversary gathering was held for 2 days from October 1, 1936, at the same shrine.
More pictures to come.
The bowl bears the seal of its maker 「玄」.
A small part of the white glaze seems to have peeled off, but that does not take away the noble air of the bowl, quite the contrary, that wabi-sabi feature gives it more depth.
The chawan comes with fitted wooden box.
Size: 7.4 x 12.7 cm (3 x 5 in)
